Trump Hails Progression on Virus Vaccine During Visit to North Carolina

President Donald Trump visited North Carolina Monday to tout the rapid progression of possible vaccines to treat coronavirus.

Trump toured the FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies Bioprocess Innovation Center in Morrisville.

This comes on the same day volunteers rolled up their sleeves Monday to take part in the biggest test yet of an experimental COVID-19 vaccine.

The first of some 30,000 volunteers were receiving shots created by the U.S. government as part of the all-out global race to stop the outbreak. It will be months before results trickle in.

Meanwhile, Trump’s national security adviser tested positive for the virus. And there were setbacks in efforts to restart American baseball, with two major league games canceled because of a outbreak, and for Europe’s plans to restart tourism, with rising infection rates in Spain causing concern for that country’s neighbors.
